A message from Interim President Charles Karr.

2024 Employee Spotlights

We are excited to announce a new Employee Spotlight Program! We will highlight the achievements and recognize efforts & accomplishments of select UAH employees who have reached 30+ years of service with The University of Alabama Huntsville every quarter.

It is an honor to spotlight two of our outstanding colleagues whose exceptional contributions have truly made a difference within our university. We are thrilled to recognize the remarkable achievements they have made over the course of their prestigious careers. Their hard work and commitment have not only elevated their own performance but have also positively impacted our entire campus and community. We hope that by watching these videos, it will help ignite in you the same level of passion for education, research, and innovation that is so crucial for the university’s future growth and success. Please join us in thanking and celebrating Dr. Robert Frederick and Dr. Andrew Cling!
